Yup.  One thread to keep the ember glowing is all we have needed for some time now. :-)

Oh I hate it when I get binded in the darkness.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

So it's been 4 years since the OP.

Is it safe to say that this isn't happening?

Yeah. This deal is dead.

IMO, no deal will ever happen... but my opinion doesn't mean squat. I just don't see enough incentive for NCSoft to ever be interested in a deal.

Nobody knows for sure b/c the people who know more aren't coming forward, for reasons no one definitively knows about.

Google tells me that an NDA typically lasts from 2 to 5 years.  So, I guess we'll see what things are like in another year.

Some are as long as 10 or 15.  Depends on the agreement.  In any case, no NDA is permanent.  A court would nullify any agreement that a lawyer positions as such, but in any case, just because a NDA is finite does not mean that when it does end the parties involved necessarily are obligated to tell us anything either. 

If the deal failed and those at the table have all moved on to other things, who would be left tell us?  NCSoft wouldn't make a disclosure if there's no new business or PR advantage to saying so.  And if the prospective buyers don't care to come forward with what happened, how would we know?  (Downix might get an answer someday, but he can't force people to talk.)

I think our hopes now lie with SEGS
They have a partially functional issue 1 compatible emulator and the team are active on GitHub again.

I agree. I've been out of the loop w/ SEGS as of late, but I think they're all we got at this point (speaking within the context of getting COH back, I mean).

I wish they had more momentum/steam behind them... but maybe that's a blessing in disguise? Perhaps laying low and not having too many eyes on them might be for the best during these early development stages.
